I Missed the “How to Adult” Memo

October 23, 2019

I’m Kelly Nolan.
I'm an attorney who'd been decently organized through law school but got quickly overwhelmed as a actual attorney. After nothing else worked for me, I created this system – and kept on practicing law. Years later, I found out others were interested in learning it, so that's what I do now! Let's get this realistic system in your hands so you can start living a life that feels more calm, doable, and that lights you up.

When I was a brand new attorney, I felt like everyone else got this “how to adult” memo I missed (or maybe it got lost in my paper piles).

I left school and immediately got overwhelmed by managing a career, family, friends, dating, even the run-of-the-mill medical things, financial info, etc.

I basically ignored my personal Gmail for months on end. And I just felt like I was scrambling from thing to thing. If I focused on my work, my personal life was neglected. And vice versa.

At the time, I didn’t really get that it came down to time management. All of those things require time, so managing my time was what I should focus on. But I also didn’t know where to start.

I felt lost, confused, and oddly embarrassed. I say oddly because I recognize now how odd it was — no one taught me how to “adult,” how to manage my time as a professional working woman. But I nonetheless assumed I should magically know and beat myself up for not.

The more clients I work with, the more I see some variation of these feelings in them. They’re embarrassed. Even sometimes feeling real shame.

So I just want you to know: if you too feel like you missed the “how to adult” memo, you’re not alone. And don’t beat yourself – no one taught you how to do this!

It’s also never too late to turn the ship around and get some clarity, calm and confidence rocking in your life.
